There are certain times in your life when something happens. It's a surprise and you are touched and maybe affected deeply. Maybe it's a piece of music, a novel, a movie -- whatever it is, you are moved by the experience.
Who knew that someone would be so moved by a 1970s British TV space show as to recreate the sets and then live in them.
A while ago, I posted about a fellow who lived in a STAR TREK apartment.
And now ... there's a woman who took the set designers of SPACE:1999 to heart. Catherine Bujold Sorellarium 13 is going to live in Moonbase Alpha, gang. Go, look. She's lost her mind, bless her heart. But she seems to have found her joy, which is more than most.
I remember the reviews for the show. One was titled "Space:1999, Marked Down from 2001." It was not a mass-audience hit, but now there is a kitsch factor going for it. The title sequence is still a lot of fun. The theme, by Barry Gray, is full of cool guitar licks. You'll see that in the middle of the titles there's a placard that says THIS EPISODE and you get quick cuts of all sorts of action/explosions/running/explosions/ray guns zapping/explosions previewing the adventure, a practice that the new BATTLESTAR GALACTICA show has borrowed in its own titles, Ron Moore, the BSG producer, has openly credited 1999.
